Lunch Time Supervisor job vacancy in *****, Temporary position ITN Mark Education are looking for a committed lunchtime supervisor for a school in ****** Seen today on ITN mark education Successful lunchtime supervisors will: Understand the school's safeguarding policies and follow procedures accurately Ensure children are engaged in healthy and inclusive activities Have an approachable nature, building good relationships with all pupils and staff. Provide immediate first aid when required Uphold the rules of the school and model expected behaviour at all times Have recent experience of supporting children in a primary school setting To be considered for this role it would be advantageous if you: - Level 3 qualified in childcare (or working towards) - Relevant experience in a primary school (minimum 3 months experience required) - Demonstrate good communication skills both orally and written - The flexibility to work as and when required - Live within a reasonable travelling distance to the school - Have a positive attitude to working as part of a team. Reasons that this is ridiculous. Because you need to be committed but they won't. Because you need to be ridiculously overqualified. Because, having worked in a school you know that playtime is where most of the worst misbehaviour can occur. Because 6 hours a week will barely pay much more than your bus fare if you live further away than ALL THEIR PARENTS AND THEIR LOCAL COMMUNITY, the natural source of lunchtime supervisors countrywide, and you need to keep a roof over your head. Because their job advert is putting unecessary barriers up to people who could do an excellent job, and be far more committed to being a lunchtime supervisor. I don't know why this has incensed me so much, but it has. Don't get me started on most TA jobs being advertised for graduates, or even as routes into teaching (level 3 jobs replaced by a level 2 paid graduates or even exhausted ex teachers), apart from SEN level 2 jobs these days, or my head might just explode.
